Grace Kids and Grace Youth
Our ministries are intended to provide care for your child, fun through active engagement, and most importantly to communicate who the God of the Gospel is. We do this with the prayerful hope that it might transform the whole person through faith in Christ, the perfect image of God the Father, by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. While ministry to children and youth is more than childcare, your child will still be cared for while they are here at Grace. We desire to have a cooperative relationship between our Church and your family where each is mutually built up. Neither prospers health unless we both do.
There is child care available for nursery age children, 0-24 months, in Room 201. This is open for you children during both the 9:30am and 11am services.
2s & 3s (9:30am-12pm)
There is child care available for 2-3 year-olds after the Kid’s Takeaway in Room 206 which is at the end of the Kid’s Wing on the left.
Children's Church (9:30am-11am)
Children’s Church is available during the Sunday Morning service directly after the Kid’s Takeaway. This is available for K–2nd Grade. There are songs, bible stories, and activities that will help the truth of God’s Word come to life. Children’s Church desires to communicate God’s redemptive story, found in His Word, to cause lasting life change. Children’s Church occurs in Room 207 where you can pick them up after the service or if you and they would like to stay for Sunday School you are welcome to do so! Room 207 is at the end of the Kid’s Wing on your right-hand side.
Sunday School (11am-12pm)
There are five Sunday School classes for Grace Kids and one for Grace Youth. In conjunction with other Grace ministries, Sunday School communicates God’s redemptive story, found in His Word, to cause lasting life change. There is time for play, Bible lessons, and various activities including songs and crafts. Children and Youth are not merely the future of our Church but are currently a part of it. For that reason, we desire to equip, encourage, and exhort them in who they are already are in Christ or who they might be through faith in Christ.
Youth Group occurs most Sundays from 5:30pm-7:30pm. This is for youth 6th-12th grade. Grace Youth exists as participants of GCBC identity and ministry to communicate the Gospel of Jesus which transforms the heart, mind, and body. We typically have a time for games, activities, snacks, Bible Lesson, and small group discussion. Look to the Church calendar to confirm what days we are meeting and also for special events. Come join us!
Parents are asked to regularly help with our weekly snacks. You can sign up to bring snacks HERE.
